So for St. Patrick’s Day…

I always share my truth!

My truth?

Here it goes—I’ve been teaching this in corporate America for over 20 years—and I still feel them roll their eyes when I start.

Ireland has three colors in their flag.

Orange/White/Green.

King William of Orange chose these colors to represent the following:

Orange—Protestants

Green- Catholics

White—the hope and prayer that someday both could live at peace with one another!

And that’s why- on St. Patrick’s Day—Protestants are supposed to wear ORANGE, not GREEN!

But of course—EVERYONE wears Green!

I was trying to teach a 5 year old the reason why we wear Orange.

He got stuck on the word “Protestant!”

My 5 year old grandson Jett asked me “what’s a processtant?”

I repeated “protestant”

He replied “what the?”

He wasn’t getting it…

I know, I know…too young to understand.

But… he did dress up for the holiday!

In GREEN!

In the spirit of true transparency—I must confess—

I bought him the GREEN hat that he is wearing—he wore it to school!

Hey…it was on clearance…

And I knew…

He wouldn’t know a ProcessStant from a Caterpillar! (that’s what he called the word Catholic!)

Maybe next year…

Just sign me…
